Lewis Hamilton won't gift a race win to Valtteri Bottas

Hamilton doesn't support expansion of the season from 21 races to 25

This season has 21 races, as does 2019, but Formula One has also been talking to Miami for a US street race and Zandvoort in the Netherlands about a return to the coastal circuit last visited in 1985.

"I think something went wrong, as in we didn't go and develop something in the right direction. I think 18 was probably the best back in the day", he added.

"I'm someone who really loves racing but the season is long". This season is the second time the F1 calendar has been at its longest, with a total of 21 races. You start preparing for next year as soon as the season is so done, so getting your mind tuned is very hard'.

"It's the greatest partnership in terms of respect and teamwork from drivers that I'm sure has ever existed in Formula One - probably. That's very hard. Then you have to find a way of switching off and recovering at the same time".

Asked ahead of this weekend's Brazilian Grand Prix if he would be tempted to hand a win to his wingman in exchange for his services, Hamilton said he doubted Bottas would want to be gifted a victory.

Sadly for them, deleting the upgrade had a marked improvement on the SF71H's performance, with Kimi Raikkonen managing to beat Lewis Hamilton in a straight fight to victory at the United States Grand Prix that came after Japan, while Ferrari again looked to have the superior package of the two teams in Mexico.

"But I think it just points to the fact that there is still even at this time of the year things you can learn from and improve".

Vettel will hope for a repeat of 2017 this week - previous year he won in Brazil after Hamilton had won the title in Mexico.

Hamilton hailed Bottas's contribution after winning the championship in Mexico, and has emphasised how well they get on as team mates.

"So I don't think I'll be doing him any favours in the sense of giving him a win, I don't think he needs that - I think he thinks he can do it himself".

And as they attempt to overhaul Mercedes' 55-point advantage in the constructors' standings with two races to go, that could prove key.

Hamilton has won only once before in Brazil, in 2016, and in those years where he has wrapped up the title with races to spare has failed to triumph afterwards.

"I definitely wouldn't want to win by being given [it]", he said. "There are times where I've figured something out in my set-up and I'll tell him and there are times that I can talk to him". "We still have a job to do this weekend, which is to win the constructors' title so the focus remains exactly the same as it has done the previous races in my mind". It's not always easy to find solutions.
